The Big Two: Unusual river cruises in Asia


There are a plethora of cruises available on Asia’s waterways. From China’s Yangtze to sailings to the Mekong and Irrawaddy. The tours are all incredible in their own right and equally versatile. It’s an unfortunate fact that they are often banded under one heading because, as with Europe, each river has its own characteristics and history.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s River guide 2016, each week we will be running our Big Two feature, which gives you a couple of cruise options. This week it’s river cruises in Asia that offer something different.
